I'm a singer, songwriter, producer, specializing in lead vocals, demo vocals, background vocals, and vocal layering. I fell in love with music and songwriting when I was a teenager and have been playing live and recording ever since. I've worked in a myriad of genres: Americana, Electronic, Soul, Pop, R&B, Alternative, Gospel, Jazz. I have done a lot of solo work under the names "Denitia" and "Adesuwa." In the past few years, I've toured and made records with my indie r&b duo, denitia and sene. When I'm not writing and performing original music, I do a lot of sessions here in New York, remotely as well as in studios with artists. Most recently, I've contributed to the records of (other than my own) - J.Views, Sly5thAve, Xander Duell, Brown Science, IGBO, Saint Ballantine, Sam Himself, Obey City, Quantic, amongst some others.

Interview with Denitia
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Pop, New Wave, Indie, R&B, Shoegaze, Chillwave, Soul
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: My strongest skill is interpretation and capturing very clean and clear vocals.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I bring an emotive, intentional quality to songs. I have a large range and am also well versed in lots of genres, so I bring an eclectic quality to the table.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I like to get familiar with the material as soon as possible, I schedule a session in my studio and give myself more than enough time to complete. I fly in the reference or demo into a ProTools session and mark the timeline with song parts such as verse, chorus, bridge, etc. Then I open up several vocal tracks and send them through a main vocal bus with the desired effects. I warm up for about 20 minutes, then start to record takes! Typically, I like to sing a song all in one take from start to finish and then layer parts from there. For background vocals, I record section by section. After recording several takes of each part, I add harmonies where needed. Then I comp vocals, if needed, until I have my final takes. In order to transfer the stems to the client, I consolidate all the clips, then I go into my audio files folder for the session and label all the stems I want, then I copy those into a new folder to send to the artist or client. I compress that folder and send over the web!
